It is with great sadness that I have to let you know that we recently lost Oscar. We discovered a lump a few months ago that was diagnosed as cancer but Oscar did not know he was ill and kept on running, splashing and wagging his tail as per usual. He had regained a bit of weight after becoming very skinny and it looked as if he would go on for quite a while. Unfortunately, being Oscar he charged into a hedgerow as was his style and got a thorn in his eye and within a few hours his eye had turned a milky white.
After consultation with vet the only option was to remove the eye, but after further consultation with the opthalmic specialist it was felt that given Oscar's underlying condition he would be unlikely to make a full recovery from such an operation and that the best course was sadly to put Oscar to sleep.
It was a very difficult and heart breaking decision, he had filled out lives with love and mud but he went off whilst still a happy dog after a lovely walk running in the fields, it would not have been fair to make him suffer the operation and then had to do the same thing. He was a special dog and will be with us always.
